Large Outdoor Farm Setting

Welcome to Farm School

LGCS has the unique privilege of being located on a historic 5 acre, farm setting with corn mazes, pumpkin patch, gardens, and animal encounters.  All are available for children to explore and experience.  We have also partnered with the University of Illinois Extension 4H program to enhance our educational offerings and resources for our “farm school”.  


Children have ample room to explore nature and develop their gross (large) motor skills.  Below are some benefits published by Sandford Health Research.


  • Builds physically healthier children.
  • Contributes to cognitive and social/emotional development.
  • Develops executive functioning.
  • Improves sensory skills.
  • Increases attention span.
  • Happiness and better immunity.
  • Instills an appreciation of nature.
